Comparison of some of the longest ships (Knock Nevis, Emma Mærsk, RMS Queen Mary 2, MS Berge Stahl and USS Enterprise). Colours are representative of the ships' underside and topsides. Lengths are drawn to scale, the profiles are drawn using multiple photos and diagrams, and may not be entirely accurate. The ships are not the "five largest" in the world, but the largest of each type. Knock Nevis is still the largest ship ever built, and Emma Maersk the largest ship in operation.
The remains of an albatross chick lie on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand that is one of the world's most remote marine sanctuaries. Nesting chicks fill their bellies with plastic as their parents collect and feed them bits that look to them like food. As a result, tens of thousands of albatross chicks die from starvation, choking, internal bleeding, and poisoning each year.
